How to generate a PGP key with no subkeys
By default, when you use Robo-FTP to generate a PGP key pair, it generates a key that is used for signing which has a sub key which is used for encryption. All modern PGP software packages support this type of key.
Older versions of some PGP software packages do not support sub keys.
Select the "Old PGP 2.6 Compatibility" option in the Robo-FTP Configurator when generating a key pair to generate a key that does not have a sub key.
If you choose a key type of RSA then this key can be used for both encrypting and signing. If you choose a key type of DSA then this key can only be used for signing.
